What I'm Doing 36:
Norwegian Wood directed by Anh Hung Tran.
Haruki Murakami perfectly transposed onto the screen! Sure, it was slow - but it needed to be. I felt it was a little like poetry leaving spaces to fill in. I found this satisfying because I think it strongly evoked the book, but maybe it is not so satisfying for someone who hasn't read the book - and who prefers to be entertained and not work too hard. There were some beautiful scenes, and I thought the translator of the subtitles did a grand job (not that I know any of the original Japanese, of course, but just judging on the end result).
What I'm listening to:
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Since I've only just started, and it is very long, I should think this will keep me going for some time.
What I'm reading (i) on my Kindle:
Re-Vamp, an anthology of speculative fiction edited by Die Booth and L.C. Hu.
What I'm reading (ii) on paper:
The top four are 'work' (i.e. research for my novel), whilst the bottom three are pleasure and have been given to me by publishers. At the moment I am in the middle of the Silk Industry of Renaissance Venice by Luca Mola - which is completely fascinating.
